Badlands National Park was such a cool experience for us! It was just sooooo different from the landscape in Virginia. • It was awesome to see the awe on our kids faces as we drove in and they got to see something so beautiful and different. • It’s definitely one of the reasons we decided to take this trip. To expose them to the amazing beauty our country has to offer. • -

We're the traveling Hinsons.

We're a family of five from Virginia who have always valued family time and tried to make the most of our short time together. We realize we have only 18 summers to make the most of our time with our kids, and we don't plan on any of that going to waste.

In 2016, in the midst of a very stressful life transition, we decided to get a pop-up camper to try an experiment in getting close to nature and engaging with each other. The next year, we took it out for a month-long trip.

In the spring of 2018, we decided to follow what many of our friends thought was a crazy idea. We sold our pop-up and purchased a big truck, and travel trailer. In August, we sold our home and set off on our journey to see all 48 states.

We've been on the road for over 1200 days, and it's the best decision we've ever made. We'd be honored if you followed our journey.
